Under Sedation: Canberra verse remixed takes on a curated collection of compositions from the 1940s to the present day, weaving together the old, the new, sung, spoken, published, drafted, applauded, unknown, the earnest, irreverent – and turns them into a new theatre work. 

Set in the round surrounded by Goya’s Saturn, a man and a woman look at each other and embark on a series of intricate encounters in Canberra. A play of words, physical theatre and music unfolds.

Verses penned are reworked, remixed, re-licked and re-loaded into a thought-provoking story with a mix of characters in Canberra silhouettes played by two actors, unravelling the inhumanity of humanity and their complacency, loneliness, anger, loss, and joy.

Collected, edited and directed by Adele Chynoweth, Under Sedation: Canberra verse remixed credits Canberra poets for their national contribution to poetry, song lyrics and the spoken word.
